Question Springs for Sheridans

I know I have seen a post somewhere about this before but I never saw an answer. My question is why can't or can you use nelson springs in a sheridan gun???
I know the rear cap/asa/rva would have to be drilled out and the cup seal might need something on it to keep the spring from dropping over it but aside from issues caused by the diameter of the springs what else??
This would be great for the strokers as the nel springs are softer, hence less effort/air pressure to cock the gun. It would also be an advantage on pumps to make the action smoother and make them easier to cock. I have some nel springs and a project sheridan but need to get a valve tool to try it. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I've actually been toying with that idea myself for a while lately. I let you know how it turns out when I get around to it.

Isn't it possible just to find weaker springs with the same diameter as the stock sheridan ones?

not a matter of weaker spring, it's more the factor of coils per inch.
more coils. longer spring for throw. tend to get spring bind right before you hit the correct velocity. hence with a bigger dia spring, rated at the same as stock spring, with less ciols per inch would not bind and give a great range of adjustment
